The secrets to getting gauge and knitting perfect swatches [5 common mistakes]

Nimble needles put together a very comprehensive vid on how to manage the process of getting gauge including a very important first step of measuring your gauge tool to see if it's actually 4" or 10 centimeters, something I've never even thought about. At the shop we've talked about hanging your swatch if the final fabric will be worn and he includes how to do that. Happy swatching!

A step-by-step tutorial on knitting gauge swatches and how to get gauge no matter if you knit flat or in the round. Read the full tutorial here: https://nimb...

Fixing Mistakes: Laddering Up Garter or Seed Stitch // Technique Tuesday

Finally a great tutorial for fixing garter stitch and seed stitch errors without unknitting an entire row. This method recommends a double-ended crochet hook but also shows a regular crochet hook to make repairs. Thanks RoxRocks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPD7_VKO5q0

It's Giving Tuesday and wow have you been generous!
As of today we have received over 500 hats and donated them to the following organizations: St Raymond of Penafort, Congregation Ner Shalom, Operation Allies Welcome, and the Native American Reservation in Jackson, Wyoming. In total over the last 10 years, we calculated that the donations exceeded 4000 hats. WOWOW!

In addition, we received and forwarded over 400 hand knit prosthetics to the #Knittedknockers national office just this year alone and over the last 7 years a whopping total of 2000 have made a difference for women recovering from breast cancer.

I am so proud to be a part of this caring and generous community. Warmest hugs to each and every one of you.

This page will be closing on December 30th when the shop closes its doors. For over 5 years we built a tatting community that met monthly. We were led by two award-winning tatters Bonnie Swank and Karen Beary Parent. We laughed, we learned, we shared, and a craft that was dying out was reborn. Thank you to all who participated.

😭 going to miss popping in the shop at beautiful historic Occoquan.
We went to visit a local town (Occoquan, Occoquan, Virginia) last weekend for a grand opening of a tea shop. Leaf and Petal had a great opening weekend, and we have enjoyed the tea that we bought there. While we were there, we stopped by a cute little breakfast place (Grind N Crepe) for some wonderful crepes. We also shopped at a local yarn store (Yarn Cloud) to find a yarn to continue a shawl I had been working on. Do you have a cute little town near you that you like to shop at?
Visiting Occoquan is like stepping back in time! Such a cute small historic town. Worth visiting! We visit often: The Secret Garden Cafe, Yarn Cloud, Puzzle Palooza, labella_bridal_dresses, C**k & Bowl, Grind N Crepe The Spot On Mill Street.
Finished pictures with human model! Loving the softness 🥰
“Straight on the Bias” finished and on the blocking mats! I’ll post a picture of me wearing it once it’s dry.
Do you have the reinforcement fiber/elastic for knitting toes and heels for handmade socks?
Robyn, if you get the Outlander knitting patterns book, please save one for me!! Thanks honey!! 🧶
Bella is all for helping our local community and asking people to shop small businesses for the holidays. Some of her favorites shops in Occoquan are: Urban Posh Boutique, So Olive, Gift & Gather, VanEch Studio Mandrill Toys & Collectibles Yarn Cloud
All done ✅ just have to block,
Knitting on the Bias KAL finished
I made the swatch for the Straight on the Bias KAL using scrap yarn 🥰 I think I made myself a cute little coaster
I’m always seeing a group of mini skiens. Do you have cotton/blend, DK wt.? I’m wanting to make washcloths. I prefer natural colors. I would need them mailed.
